I have a big green egg and have been baking neapolitan style pizzas on it with decent results for the last few months. I am thinking of experimenting with using wood as fuel. I currently use lump charcoal and the hottest stone temp I have achieved to date was 860*. I am hoping the addition of wood may help get me past the 900* mark.
I am wondering if anyone has experience using any other types of hardwood in WFO's. I currently have chunks of hickory, apple and cherry that I use for BBQ and thought this would be a decent place to start. If these woods are not worth using for any reason I will be interested to hear about others experiences.
I was doing some research on this and came across this article last night - http://www.newser.com/story/89129/police-coffin-wood-fuels-naples-pizza-ovens.html
- I guess I can't do worse than this.
I plan to use a mix of about 80% lump and 20% wood chunks to start. I will post results later this week.
